I was born and raised in Fallingbrook, Wisconsin, and except for college, I have lived here all my life. Now I run a donut and coffee shop, Deput Donut, with my late husband's father, Tom. He and his wife Cindy are like a second set of parents.
My own parents spend only some of July and August in Wisconsin. Their home is an RV that they drive to Florida at the first sign that a chill might hit the air. They return only when they're sure that northern Wisconsin won't be cold for them.
If they were here for Mother's Day, they could join Tom, Cindy, and me for my annual Mother's Day barbecue.
It might rain here on Sunday.
No matter the weather, I'll bake Cindy a cake and we'll have a delicious and companionable dinner.
I've mailed a card to my mother. Living in an RV, she doesn't want things, so I've had some coffees and chocolates sent to her.
And I'm sending her and everyone, whether we're mothers or not, this virtual tour of Monet's Garden in Giverney, France.
